This lot represents the only the second CGC Graded example of this FIRST printing Jimi Hendrix poster to ever appear in our auction! Created by John Van Hamersveld, this rendering of Hendrix is one of the most recognized images from the archives of the guitar legend's short career. This poster is one of the most sought after Jimi Hendrix Concert posters of all time.

 

Museum Quality copies of the poster sell for well over $10,000 + in today's market. Although this example has some hints of it's 50+ years of age, it is an original printing. Jimi Hendrix was the undeniable ”Poster Boy” of the sixties. His style and flash made him one of the most recognizable characters of the decade. This piece contains one of the most enduring images of this legendary guitar god.

 

This poster, by master LA artist John Van Hamersveld, is a lasting remnant from a very rare period in history. While San Francisco was getting all of the attention for its “scene”, Los Angeles California was having a pretty wild party on its own, and since it was LA, it had to be bigger and more sensational. A promotion group known as Pinnacle Productions began having concerts at the 5000 seat Shrine Auditorium, and was hosting many of the now legendary performers of the day. The Pinnacle, driven by Van Hamersveld, along with Marc Chase and Sepp Donahower, produced some of the most powerful and electrifying concerts in the history of rock music at the Shrine Auditorium in the late ‘60’s.

 

If you want the greatest Hendrix poster of them all, this is IT. If you want the best work ever produced by Hamersveld, the most commercially successful 1960's concert poster artist of all time, this is IT.
